Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 1107 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2089. It is 50 minutes shorter than next lunation 1108 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠348.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 23 July 2089 at 06:57 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 August 2089 at 03:33 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 543 km

Moon is 400 543 km (248 886 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 246 km (221 982 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 13 July 2089 at 23:07 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 July 2089 at 12:48 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 19 July 2089 at 19:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.541°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.449° in the next northern standstill on 3 August 2089 at 05:21 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 6 August 2089 at 08:28 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
